The focus has quickly been altered from Andrews horrible playoffs performance, to 'what will Artest do as a Laker this upcoming season?'.

While on the other hand Brook will have heavy expectations, and he will one of only a few that will me able to do major stuff for NJ..

You're right, Lopez has better post moves, more range on his jumper, is a superior free throw shooter, just as good a shot blocker, and has proven to be healthier through the course of the season.

Lopez had a poor start to the season with spotty minutes which is why his stats are a bit deflated. He was playing off two stars last year in Vince Carter and Devin Harris all last season as well.

He'll shine in an increased role, he's got one of the most advanced set of post and counter moves for a young guy coming into the league since Pau Gasol.

Really? I always saw Bynum as the quiet respectable type.

And is on a cheaper contract since Bynum's extension is about to kick in (IIRC)

brook is the better player right now. andrew frustrates me a lot of the times because i look at him and think "dammit don't you understand you could be the catalyst to our team" and then he goes and instead of keeping his eye on the ball and trying to strip it blindly throws his hands into the player coming to the hoop and no doubt gets called for the foul.

Lopez is no Tim Duncan, I like the kid a lot but Duncan was dominant from day one in the NBA.

Bynum has way more upside but I'm not sure I see him reaching it, whereas I believe Lopez will max himself out and become a 20-10 guy in his prime. I like the comparison to Derrick Coleman and Tom Chambers, Coleman had superior athletic and natural ability but Chamber probably had the better career because he maxed himself out with hard work and effort.

2nd year rookie already showing greatness first year vs overpaid injury prone bum.

I can't quite decide.

Lopez is still adjusting to the NBA, whereas Bynum, while young, is still technically in his fourth year or something. Statistically they're the same, but Lopez did play on a slower team (fewer shots and rebounds) without a Kobe or Gasol to draw attention away from him. The Nets were for all intents and purposes the Devin Harris and Vince Carter show with Lopez the third option without anyone to really set him up. I mean, Harris and Carter are good passers, but neither's really looking to feed the post, whereas LA's got Odom setting people up (although I can't think of him and Bynum ever being on the floor together).

The real question:
Really watered down Duncan or really watered down Shaq?

I like Lopez but it is close... Lopez already has a lot of post moves... Hopefully he became tougher.(his only big weakness imo)
